The vast Soviet military machine that invaded Finland during the Winter War of 1939-1940 was stunned by the lightly armed but intensely motivated and skilled Finnish troops. The Soviets were outfought despite hugely superior weight of numbers. Although eventually seeking terms the Finns had delivered a harsh lesson to their stout neighbours.
When the Soviet Union, having by then joined the Allies, attacked in 1941, the Finns were left with little option but to side with Germany in a conflict known as the Continuation War, making good use of German weaponry.
The Finns were masters of field craft, sniping, and small unit tactics that hit hard then disappeared into the dense forests. Their weapons were light but used with great dexterity, and many made use of captured Russian kit as there was always plenty left behind after the Finns had struck.
This box set contains nine highly detailed metal miniatures of a WWII Finnish Infantry boxed set.
Please Note: Miniatures supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
